Happy Halloween and Stacking My Shelves

MFAFHappyHalloween Princess Leia

Happy Halloween week! I can’t believe it’s this time again! This year is speeding by and in some ways I’m okay with that but in others I’m not ready for so much time to have passed.
This Halloween my family is going with a Star Wars theme. I get to be Princess Leia, husband is Obi Wan and the kiddo is Darth Vader. I’ll be sharing pictures after Halloween so you can see us in all our glory but for now I have the one above of me as Princess Leia.  I’ve wanted to do this costume for ages so I’m very excited. Tomorrow is scheduled to rain all day here so I’ve got my fingers crossed that doesn’t happen.


This was a very exciting week for me because I announced my newest project, My Friends Are Writers. I talked some about it here and you can check out the splash page and sign up email updates if you’d like. This will be a project management tool designed for writers. I really can’t wait to share more info.

The Books

Half of the above were surprises (and what fine surprises they were). I’d not heard of the Becca Fitzpatrick book before (!!!) but I’m really excited to dive in. All her books I’ve read are always very fast paced and I’m eager for that right now. And I must say–the texture on the book is amazing. I am reading Ten Thousand Skies Above You right now and am enjoying it! A Book of Spirits and Thieves is a gift and I’m so incredibly happy to own it (and complete my collection). It is sooo beautiful. Look for collection pictures coming soon to Instagram. I’ve not heard of Faking It nor have I read the first book in the series. Has anyone read it?

That’s it for me. Are you dressing up for Halloween? If so, what will you go as?

    Glad you’re enjoying Ten Thousand skies Above You! I’ve been meaning to start the trilogy?/series? for a while now. Plus, those book have stunning covers.

      Thank you! We had a blast trick or treating and I’ve shared pics of the family on IG. I’ll post them here next weekend too I’m sure. Ten Thousand Skies Above You has SUCH a pretty cover. Just perfect.

    I love this haul! Also, you make a gorgeous princess Leia. I really like it. I have read the first two books in the Firebird series by Claudia Gray and I loved both – somehow the second book was even better than book one\! Also, Dangerous Lies was a pretty good book in my opinion. You’re in for some treats!
